Does My Restaurant’s Patio Need A Clean & Seal?

Summer Empty Outdoor Patio At Tourist European City

As the owner of a restaurant, ensuring a pleasant and inviting ambiance is crucial for attracting customers. One important aspect often overlooked is the maintenance of the outdoor patio area. Over time, the patio’s concrete surface can become worn, stained, or damaged due to exposure to the elements and heavy foot traffic. Because of this, you might need to consider getting a professional clean and seal for your restaurant’s patio, as it comes with numerous benefits. 

The Importance of a Clean & Sealed Patio 

A clean and well-maintained patio enhances the overall appeal of your restaurant, leaving a positive first impression on customers. Regular cleaning helps remove dirt, grime, food spills, and stains, preventing them from becoming permanent and making your patio look neglected. 

However, you may need more than cleaning alone. As a restaurant owner, you may realize that sealing your concrete surface is equally important.

Sealing your restaurant’s patio provides several advantages. Firstly, it protects the concrete from moisture penetration, preventing cracks and deterioration caused by freezing and thawing cycles – something to pay attention to in Minnesota. Additionally, a properly sealed patio is less susceptible to oil and grease stains, making it easier to clean and maintain. Sealing also enhances the color and appearance of the concrete, giving it a vibrant and fresh look that will impress your customers.

Our Clean & Seal Process

Before we start cleaning and sealing your patio, we always make sure there aren’t any underlying issues, such as cracks or uneven surfaces. It’s important to address any problems prior to our process so that you can have the best quality clean & seal. 

  1. Before applying sealant, we will professionally power wash with a deep cleaning tool to prepare your concrete surface. 
  2. Next, we will apply cleaning agents that have been specifically formulated for concrete
  3. Then, we will thoroughly rinse all the cleaning agents from the concrete to prepare for sealing.
  4. Once rinsed, we let the surface dry for 24-48 hours 
  5. Finally, depending on the project, we will apply one to two coats of commercial-grade sealer to fit your application to manufacture specs. 

Hiring a professional concrete coating company, like Concrete Coatings of Minnesota, is highly recommended for patio cleaning. We possess the necessary expertise, equipment, and eco-friendly cleaning agents to ensure a thorough and efficient job. 

What Are The Benefits of Clean & Sealed Patios?

Enhanced Aesthetic Appeal: 

Regular cleaning removes dirt, debris, stains, and grime from the patio surface, making it look more inviting and attractive to customers. A clean patio creates a positive first impression and enhances the overall ambiance of the restaurant.

Improved Hygiene and Sanitation: 

Cleaning the patio helps maintain a hygienic environment, reducing the risk of pests, mold, and mildew growth. By eliminating food particles, spills, and other contaminants, you create a safer and healthier space for both customers and staff.

Extended Lifespan of Patio Materials: 

Sealing the patio surface provides a protective barrier against the elements, such as UV rays, rain, and temperature fluctuations. This helps prevent the patio materials from deteriorating quickly, leading to increased durability and longevity. Sealing also helps resist stains and discoloration, preserving the appearance of the patio.

Ease of Maintenance: 

Sealed patio surfaces are easier to clean and maintain over time. The sealant acts as a shield, making it easier to remove dirt, spills, and stains. Regular maintenance becomes more efficient and less time-consuming, allowing your staff to focus on other important tasks.

Safety Enhancement: 

Cleaning and sealing the patio can improve safety for both customers and staff. Removing slippery substances and maintaining a clean surface reduces the risk of slips, trips, and falls. Sealing can also help prevent cracks and uneven surfaces, minimizing potential hazards.

Weather Resistance: 

Sealing the patio protects it from the damaging effects of weather conditions. Rainwater and snowmelt can penetrate the surface and cause cracking or erosion if left unchecked. A sealed deck is more resistant to water absorption, reducing the chances of damage during rainy seasons or freeze-thaw cycles.

Cost Savings: 

Regularly cleaning and sealing the patio can prevent costly repairs or replacements in the future. Investing in maintenance and protection can save you money in the long run by prolonging the patio’s lifespan and reducing the need for extensive repairs.
